JL bar has been a working family brand in Central Montana for over 100 years at our family homestead near Flatwillow. JL bar farms seeks to carry on that tradition into the future, with a convenient location near Billings!
Late last summer, three co-parenting hens, a tri colored mottled black, a blue narragansett, and a blue sweetgrass, took their poults out into the hay field next to the barn not long after I had irrigated. They saw huge mushrooms and were unsure of them, prompting their hilarious response!

The history of the JLbar brand goes back over 100 years ago to a small ranch in Petroleum County in Montana. Still in use today, the JLbar is a right side 2 part cattle brand used by my parents, established by my great great great grandfather.
Although the current farm near Billings has been in the family since 1989, we are seeking to build something more than just the townhouse location of the ranch. The current goal is for a modest business to allow for the care of three children and a disabled husband while still being at home utilizing a love of poultry breeding to start. Goals for future expansion could include beef, jams, expanding the orchard, or even goats or sheep! We want to bring something to the table in Yellowstone county.
As one of only a handful of registered NPIP flocks in the state of Montana, we can offer you locally bred eggs and hatched chicks that are healthy and able to cross state lines legally. These birds get blood tested yearly by a veterinarian and are visited regularly, and are part of the state NPIP registry. If you are looking to stay local, this is where to get beautiful purebred heritage poultry!
